We raised £120 from donations last Saturday when the local Transition Group arranged the showing of The Age of Stupid. This was a fantastic contribution towards the cost of putting on the show. The winner of the Smart Meter is Tony Gentil. Congratulations Tony.

The Transition Group, rather than being a separate organisation, is more a village market place where all groups contributing to our communities' long-term sustainability can meet regularly to exchange ideas, skills and plan joint activities.

Covering the parishes of Audlem, Buerton, Dodcott-cum-Wilkesley and Hankelow, our group are volunteers of all ages, informal and open to ideas.

Do you have ideas or projects that you think will develop our communities, raise awareness of key issues or enable us to move away from carbon based fuels? Our local transition group gives you the opportunity to do just that.

The group has adopted a manifesto with five priorities:

  • Grow more food locally.
  • Shop local.
  • Micro-electricity generating schemes.
  • Surveying household energy usage (and advising how to reduce).
  • Communications and information about the need for transition to low-carbon living, and about low-carbon products and services to help achieve the transition.
One of the group's principles is collaboration, not duplication. So, members will be working with Parish Plan working groups where there is a common interest, rather than setting up separate initiatives; and work on the priority about growing more food locally can include collaborating with the Allotments Society, for example.

Our next meeting is on Wednesday 4th November at 8.00pm in the Baptist Chapel, Salford – we face an exciting and challenging future; join in, have fun, be part of the change.
